Threat intelligence is an important piece of any size organization’s cybersecurity system. But effective threat intelligence often fails is because threat analysis teams aren’t aligning themselves to the business, so they may be looking at the big picture of threats rather than for specific industry vertical threats. In the age of big data and data privacy regulations, this could be leaving an organization open to a damage data breach.
